Fantastic morning light in Peaks. Love this colour. It almost looks like this picture was made on Velvia50 but no. This is Kodak Ektar 100 in its finest. Truly great negative film for landscapes.

Whats your favourite film stock?

Photographs may be more memorable than moving images because they are a neat slice of time, not a flow. Each still photograph is a privileged moment turned into a slim object that one can keep and look at again.

Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask “how,” while others of a more curious nature will ask “why.” Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.

Technique and vision are inseparably linked.

Any decision which one makes at any point in the process can significantly alter its expressive qualities, its meaning.

The negative is the equivalent of the composer’s score, and the print the performance.

Higger Tor morning, looking towards Carl Wark, Peak District  2018 UK

Older summer morning shot from Higger Tor in Peak District.

I have been quite lucky with the light.

The golden light lit up the rock and mist gave the picture multidimensional feel… I’m quite pleased with this one.
